seriously unless you actually need a sound card i wouldn't think you should settle for anything less than an X-FI

o lord anthrax, i have some crappy logitech 5.1 speakers, but iwth my X-Fi's they sound so much better even thought i have crappy speakers. so its still worth spending money on a soundcard even though you don't have very good speakers
